Feeling spotty...

I am so happy to have time to play with the LIM challenge this week. This week, it's all about POLKA DOTS. 


It took me a few minutes to come up with ideas, but then I remembered that I wanted to send a card to one of my friends, and I also came across a piece of ribbon that inspired me.

First, the card for my friend Tracey, who has saved my bacon more than once.
I love this happy little mousey. I used the polka dot paper, cut to 2 inches, as a focal point, and stamped the sentiment in momento black ink. The mouse was coloured with Copics. I really like the freshness of the green paper. 
This other House Mouse card was also coloured with copics. I added a little sparkle on the ornament with a spica glitter pen. 

The sentiment is a new stamp I picked up earlier this month, in preparation for a flurry of Christmas card making in the next couple of weeks.

I have the day off tomorrow, and once the housework is done, and I have a couple of things accomplished, I will hopefully be able to play in my craft area. There are many stamps that are just waiting to get inky!
